Talk Health Kirklees


Your views on proposed changes to healthcare

What is this consultation about?

“Talk health Kirklees” is an open and honest discussion with local people about the things we could do to get better value from NHS spending.

The clinical commissioning groups (CCG’s) in Kirklees spend more than £500 million each year to ensure people receive the healthcare they need. We are committed to delivering safe, high quality local health services, but must keep within our budget.

While we have received an increase in funding, demand for services and associated costs such as medicines, treatments and the staff needed to provide them have increased too. As a result, there is a gap between the cost of healthcare in Kirklees and the money available to pay for it.

The scale of the financial challenge in Kirklees is greater than we have faced before and means that we must work even harder to achieve value for money. We have to do more with the money we have and therefore must take very tough decisions about what we can afford and what we cannot afford. We want to gather your ideas and views about proposed changes before making any decisions.
